Olsen Gallery | carolineberesford.com

Olsen Gallery has been featured in Caroline Beresfords blog reviewing Sydney contemporary. Titled ‘Walking the line between Art and Design’, a section is dedicated to Olsens solo exhibition of John Youngs works.

Read the post below:

“The Olsen Gallery presented an exquisite solo exhibition of one of their most dynamic artists John Young.

Through amalgamating digital imagery and traditional painting techniques, Young’s work explores visuality and the concerns of the contemporary body in a digital age.

John Young is one of Australia’s foremost contemporary artists, noted for his discursive and deeply scholarly approach that combines innovative painterly practice with traditional technical rigour.

The composition of shape and playful use of colour in his works exhibited at the show are a dream for interior designers wanting to creative soulful, memorable and unique interior spaces.”

In Conversation: John Young and Anna Johnson | Sydney Contemporary

DATE: Saturday 14 September 3PM – 3.30PM
LOCATION: Booth D01 – OLSEN Gallery, Sydney Contemporary, Carriageworks

Join Melbourne-based artist John Young in conversation with writer Anna Johnson. Johnson will investigate Young’s most recent body of work the dynamic ‘Spectrumfigures’, also referred to as Human-Computer Friendship paintings in a deliberate play on their uneasy relationship. Anna will also discuss John’s continued investigation of Western late modernism from a transcultural viewpoint, with particular focus of the regional development of the Asia Pacific region.

Claudia Damichi | SYDNEY CONTEMPORARY 2018

SYDNEY CONTEMPORARY 2018 ‘Always on the dancefloor’ by Claudia Damichi at The Old Clare Hotel with Olsen Gallery, Sydney

As part of Sydney Contemporary’s 2018 program, ‘Always on the dancefloor’ by Claudia Damichi is an installation of multiple adhesive fine art prints applied to The Old Clare Hotel entrance doorways.

‘Always on the dancefloor’ is an exciting extension of Damichi’s paintings that explore the intersection of art, architecture and design. This new installation work for the Sydney Contemporary is multi-modular in design and composed entirely in response to the site.

‘Always on the dancefloor’ carries on Damichi’s long standing interest in the abstract work of Mondrian, Delaunay, Kandinsky and the relationship between colour and music. As a disco child of the 70’s, her work pops and slides as it plays into the site, adding colour and movement, bringing a sense of the dance floor to the industrial building landscape .

Claudia Damichi will also present a new series of paintings and wall works at Olsen Gallery Annex in October.

Paddington Art Prize Finalists

Two of our artists have been selected as finalists in the Paddington Art Prize. We would  like to congratulate Sally Anderson and Julian Meagher on their achievement.  See the works below.

 

Julian Meagher

‘Wapengo Lake Tideline’

“I wanted this work to chase the spontaneity and freedom of a watercolour. It was painted at a time of great change just before my son was born. A time of giving in to forces far greater than me, of tides, cycles and connection to country.” Julian Meagher .
